As a Pastor or Christian leader have you been equipped to effectively minister to men, women and youth experiencing unwanted LGBT feelings and identity struggles?
How are you teaching and equipping your congregation and those in your spheres of ministry influence to live with both love and Biblical truth toward those who are LGBT identified - in their family, workplace or neighborhoods?
